There are learning opportunities all around us, it’s just a matter of us recognizing them. As long as I don’t try and be the expert all the time and act like I know more than I do, and when I’m open to learning from anyone, there’s no shortage of things I learn and grow in.

Even my daughter’s Kindergarten teacher (sorry she doesn’t have a link).
During our first parent-teacher conference last fall, I sat listening to her explain to Filipe and I the concepts she was implementing in her class- specifically how to tell a story. My first thought was, what great info. I need to apply that to my writing! I realized that day that I could grow in my writing even by applying basic kindergarten principles. It may seem silly, but how many of us remember the basics? (Those of us who aren’t teachers especially.)
